Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
On the 22nd (Fri), explore and take pictures at Coors Field and then explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum. On your second day here, browse the exhibits of Denver Botanic Gardens, then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, and then see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

Plan a trip to Denver easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Albuquerque to Denver is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle and flight; or drive. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Albuquerque in March: high temperatures in Denver hover around 55°F and lows are around 29°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) early enough to take a bus to Colorado Springs.
